Bristol-based Sam Kelly – who took the Horizon prize for emerging talent at the 2016 Radio 2 Folk Awards – will also be making a welcome return to The Guildhall on Wednesday, September 18, after fronting The Changing Room and also guesting with the John McCusker Band at the 2017 Festival.
There is a reason that Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys repeatedly have the longest CD queues, the wildest audience reactions, and one of the busiest festival calendars of any UK band, and their high-octane remodelling of how folk music can be played is leading the band from strength to strength, with the sky seemingly the limit.
Expect to hear soaring harmonies and instrumental performances of the highest calibre, infused with an infectious exuberance that leaves crowds everywhere screaming for more.
It is no surprise that the band’s 2017 debut record, Pretty Peggy, landed them multiple plays on national radio, was sound-tracked on Sky Sports, Sky Arts and Channel 4, playlisted by Cafe Nero, British Airways, Spotify and Deezer,and earned them a nomination for Best Group at the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
- Doors open from 7.30pm. Show starts at 8.00pm
- Tickets available from Cornish Riviera Box Office or over the counter at St Ives Visitor Information Centre
